Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has released their first model of the Series 3 laptops called Samsung series 3 350U2B. The distribution of this laptop is still only through some of the online retailers. Though termed as laptop but actually it can stand between laptops and the netbooks – let’s call it an ultraportable. Though it has good enough configuration but the missing CD ROM may be a major factor regarding its sales. Samsung has valued it as a $735 product.

The Samsung Series 3 350U2B has a 12.5 inch display panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio and Active Matrix TFT Colour LCD display. The maximum native resolution is of 1366 x 768 pixels.
